Popular Tennessee truck stop bought by Pilot to reopen as One9 store


A truck stop that served drivers for four decades will reopen as a store operated by the Pilot Company.

The North Forty Truck Stop located off I-40 in Holladay, Tennessee, closed for good in January 2023.

The truck stop opened in 1982 and was rebuilt following a fire in the 1990s. The store was known for the home-cooked style buffet available at the North Forty Restaurant, which closed in May 2022 following the pandemic and supply chain struggles.

Co-owner Doug Whitfield told local news outlet the Camden Chronicle that Pilot Flying J entered into a 10 year lease-finance agreement to purchase the North Forty Truck Stop.

Work is currently underway to turn the North Forty into a One9 store.

“All major amenities at this location will experience a complete makeover, including refreshed restrooms, expanded food and beverage offerings, and self-checkouts for a quicker shopping experience. We look forward to offering job opportunities at our newly remodeled facility to existing and new team members,” said Shannon Stone, senior manager of store modernization for Pilot Flying J.

“Pilot is looking forward to joining the community in Holladay with the recent purchase of the North Forty Truck Stop property. Our team is working hard to remodel this location quickly as it joins our family of brands as a One9 store,” Stone said.

The store’s Google for Business profile says that the One9 location will open April 15.
